3335-7-04 Proposals and approval process.

(A) Proposals to establish or amend a clinical faculty in a college or school reporting directly to "Office of Academic Affairs" (OAA) must be submitted to the provost by the dean of the college or director of the school reporting directly to OAA. Proposals must include a clear rationale for establishing a clinical faculty track and address how the terms and conditions of the appointments will be consistent with the rules set forth in Chapter 3335-7 of the Administrative Code, what titles will be given to clinical faculty, and what department and college governance rights will be extended to clinical faculty. Clinical faculty may not participate in the promotion and tenure reviews of tenure faculty. In addition, proposals must include the following components:

(1) A definition of the role in teaching and scope of professional practice duties of clinical faculty, identifying specifically how those differ from duties of tenure-track faculty;

(2) Identification of the requirements for a clinical faculty appointment, including appropriate terminal degrees and any credential or licensure requirements; and

(3) A list of courses that could be taught by clinical faculty and the relationship of those courses to the general curriculum. The expectation would be that clinical track faculty should teach primarily courses involving professional practice in the clinical setting or courses designed to teach professional skills.

Proposals must comply with any additional guidelines promulgated by the council on academic affairs and will be reviewed according to criteria specified by the council on academic affairs.

(B) With the exception of changes to existing titles, proposals from a college or school reporting directly to OAA to establish or amend a clinical faculty must be approved by a majority of the tenure-track faculty of the college or school reporting directly to OAA proposing to have a clinical faculty, by the dean of the college or school reporting directly to OAA, by the executive vice president and provost, by the university senate, and by the board of trustees. The executive vice president and provost will transmit all proposals to the council on academic affairs, which will review proposals and make a recommendation to the university senate. Title changes must be consistent with rule 3335-7-02 of the Administrative Code, but need only be approved by a majority of the tenure track faculty and dean of the college of director of the school reporting directly to OAA proposing the amendment.
